INTRODUCTION It’s finally here, after the huge gap, Devblog #8 is here, bigger and better than ever as a Christmas gift from the UG:RP team to all of you who’ve supported us over this long journey and had your faith in us, nothing keeps us happier than you guys being on our side as we change the course of Roleplay as we know it, together. CAN'T TOUCH THIS As most of you already know, one of the features provided by UG:MP is custom animations; with the help of that, we’ve added quite a few dancing animations for you to enjoy, but the fun doesn’t stop there. You can learn new dancing moves by progressing and practicing with the interactive dance system. What is Interactive dance system you ask? With the I.D.S system, you can do different dancing moves with different key combinations, allowing you to do amazing and smooth combos, learning new moves as you go. New moves that you learn can include static/dynamic dance animations from which the dynamic ones will be available to use via the I.D.S system to make even greater dance moves. HERE COMES THE MONEY When it comes down to making a fat bundle of cash the legit way, businesses are the best option to go for. The business system comes with a decent control panel, allowing you to manage every aspect of your business, such as your safe, stereo, entrance fee, keys and also do various maintenance tasks such as changing your business type, lock, sign and more! But where it gets even more interesting is product management, with the business product management, you can pull down a product from your shelves, change its price tag and re-stock. Re-stocking is a whole another system which is integrated into the business system; you can place re-stocking orders which is then fulfilled by the trucking companies who will deliver the stocks to your business, creating an actual immersion between the jobs in the process. DESIGNATED DRIVER When you hear the term driving license in any Roleplay server, the first thing that comes to your mind is a basic test, but here on UG:RP, we have introduced a licensing system as realistic as possible, resembling the original test sheets that we see in real life. There are four different license types which you can apply for, Driver’s license, CDL license, Boating license and Carriage license. While the first three is obvious, let’s focus on the Carriage license a bit more. Carriage license is directly linked to the import and export system, so if you’d like to start off your own import and export business, or transport goods and merchandise such as vehicles, business stocks, etc… you need to hold a Carriage license or you might end up having legal troubles, do note that this license won’t be to any use if you’re transporting illegal items. GOOD LOOKIN Clothing is one of the most important aspects of GTA Underground and UG:RP as a whole, so we’ve designed the perfect system for it. So who isn’t tired of the simple m_selection menu we saw for clothing menus in every single server? Thanks to UG:MP, we’ve designed the perfect menu for the clothing shops that you can easily get around with and purchase what you are looking for. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Try searching by the ID, class and the price range. Speaking of classes, clothes have different classes, so you won’t find all of the clothes in just one shop, you might need to head over to the downtown fancy clothes shop to pick a suit, while you can find a top tank and a pair of jeans at almost any clothing shop. BOMB HAS BEEN PLANTED Been having trouble with a late taxpayer or need to assassinate someone? What’s better than doing it the good ole fashion way? You can purchase one from the right connections, official factions have the ability to purchase military explosives on the S.N.C (Secure Network Chain), and you can also craft your own explosive by getting your hands on the right materials, however, it might not have the quality of a military explosive. Bombs come in different shapes and types, timer bombs, detonator bombs, proximity bombs and vehicle-borne bombs; some can be crafted while some can only be found on the S.N.C. A LIVING WORLD One of the primary objectives UG:RP is aiming for is a living immersive world, so we’re made the cities more and more interactive with the players. One prime example that we’ve implemented would be the fully functioning Shore Side Vale lift bridge that works just like GTA III. Occasional weather evens will also happen, mostly if there is an ongoing event in the Real Life counterparts of the cities we have thanks to our weather system. There are various more interactions for you to discover, in each city and their surroundings, some may even be Easter eggs. EYE IN THE SKY It might come in handy for surveillance, or if you just want to have fun and take pictures, drones are for you. There are multiple drone designs that you can purchase and use, with different signal ranges, zooming lens, and battery types. Law Enforcement factions also have their own unique drone which comes pre-equipped with infrared and night vision cameras. GLORYHOLE Another new equipment added to the Law Enforcement factions arsenal is the snake cam, be safe and see what lays ahead of you before a breach and a takedown. It also possesses a night vision option, perfect for night-time breaches or low-light environments. The cam is easily moveable in any direction without causing any attention. FORTUNATE SON One of the most wanted features is now finally here, the gambler’s paradise, casino system. Including a wide variety of different games such as Texas Hold’em Poker, Slot Machines, Blackjack, Lottery and Wheel of Fortune. The games have a well-designed UI with a built in help section to teach you about the game if you’re new, being easy to manage and use. Some of the games can only be played at casinos while you can play some anywhere or host your own back room for games such as Blackjack and Texas Hold’em Poker, however it might be illegal without holding an appropriate license or going above the game limits, the risk is up to you to make. THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE Be the seeing eye and see everything, we have a CCTV system implemented with the addition of UG:MP overlays for the most realistic outcome. CCTVs can be dynamically created and placed in-game; Have them installed around the cities for Law Enforcement surveillance, inside banks, your own businesses and even house. CCTVs can be remotely accessed, which depends on their connection range and type, public service CCTVs can only be accessed at certain locations such as control rooms, while cloud personal CCTVs can be checked on the go, regardless of your location. SMOKE WEED EVERYDAY The drug we’ll be talking about in this devblog is nothing but the infamous Marijuana. Weed or Marijuana doesn’t work as a simple /useweed in UG:RP, there are different consumption methods, you can roll a joint or use a bong, this feature does not apply to this drug but other drugs do have different consumption methods as well. You can find tobacco shops around each city where you can purchase bongs, pipes, medical marijuana, cigarettes and more, however, if you’re looking for recreational weed, S.N.C is where you can find it, so you’d better find a proper connection for yourself. S.N.C provides Marijuana bulks or seeds if you’re willing to plant them yourself, however, remember that plants require water and a proper condition to grow as you expect them to, otherwise you’ll either end up getting bad weed or nothing at all. CRACK OPEN A COLD ONE Something interesting, yet not to be properly implemented anywhere… till now. A safe cracking system. Let’s dive in. There are different safe types with different lock and alarm types which can be purchased for either your home, business, garage, warehouse, etc… each type comes with a different price rag depending on the security measures. You can crack the said safes with the right tools, however, the higher the security measures of the safe, the harder it’s going to be to crack. Cracking is a risky task itself regardless of the safe, some safes might send a silent alert to the local police department after a few failed attempts at getting them opened, some might even work with the help of a drill and a crowbar, overall, the risk is definitely worth the effort if you know whose safe to hit. SQUILLIAM FANCYSON What is a Roleplay server without a furniture system? On UG:RP you can customize your interior design from the walls to the tiny bits of details, there are more than 20 categories of items for your to choose from, including several new items added with UG:MP, including empty interior designs, make your imagination shine. USER CONTROL PANEL A new era requires a sleek and modern UCP design, which is exactly what we’ve aimed for. Profile management with a profile picture, MDC and Factions are also accessible for those with proper permissions, create up to six characters and easily manage them without having to log into the game server. View the list of our staff team and read the latest news on the server’s announcement board which is linked to the UCP. TIME TO BUZZ AGAIN You guessed it, Buzzard Beta Test #3, it’s scheduled to come within a day or two after this devblog and last for up to a month! Various bug fixes and improvements have been added to the backend and the actual interface. Included a night mode for easy reading, easier content management and image enhancements. On the other side hand, Buzzard will get it’s very own Windows and Android app, and if possible, iOS too. Apps have native functions that work directly with Buzzard’s API, with their own interfaces. MAPPING SNEAK PEAKS The best way to end this Christmas present devblog is by showing some of the latest mapping additions:
